Roger Williams Park Ponds

As part of its mission, RINHS works with partner organizations to facilitate projects that promote natural history education, foster scientific research, or improve habitat and biodiversity.

RINHS is working with the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program, the City of Providence, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and others on a project to improve water quality and biodiversity in the ponds in Roger Williams Park in Providence. Roger Williams Park is a major asset to the city and one of the best places available for city dwellers, especially those without access to private transportation, to “get out there” and learn about biodiversity and ecosystems. It was the site of the first Rhode Island BioBlitz and the site of other RINHS educational outreach projects over the years.

If you see crews out at the park rearranging the ways roads and parking lots drain into the ponds, constructing basins and swales to catch sediment and pollution, and installing pond-edge plants to discourage geese, you’ll know that’s the Rhode Island Natural History Survey at work.
